Take a look at these photographs of a Red Bull Air Race’s Edge 540 flying in formation with a Soko G-2 Galeb in Yugoslav Air Force color scheme

A pretty unusual formation featuring the Peter Podlunsek Racing Team / PP37’s Zivko Edge 540 V2 raceplane and a Soko G-2 Galeb trainer.

Peter Podlunšek is a Slovenian pilot that competes for the famous Red Bull Air Race World Championship Master Class flying a Zivko Edge 540 V2 raceplane.

In two decades of flying global airshows as well as competitive events, during which he has clocked more than 1,800 flight hours (1,000 of them in aerobatics) Podlunšek has also had the opportunity to form up with some interesting warbirds.

Among these, a cool privately-owned Soko G-2 Galeb two-seater jet trainer and light ground-attack aircraft (during the Croatian International Airshow Varazdin 2016 at the end of July) and some Montenegro Air Force Gazelle helicopters.
